e.l.f. – affordable make-up with how-to guides included
e.l.f. stands for eyes, lips and face. e.l.f. is an online cosmetic retailer that has introduced a limited edition gift range for Christmas 2010.
There are great ranges with lots of colour choices available. Prices are low with many sets coming in at under £10. So if you have lots of teenage girls to buy for this year or lots of girly mummy friends, this is your one-stop make-up shop.
We loved the beauty encyclopaedia set for lips. This came in an attractive presentation box with 12 lip colour shades, 2 lip gloss shades, 1 lip liner and 1 lip defining brush. Everything you need to perfect your pout for kisses under the mistletoe. There are clear instructions on how to apply the products. The sleek design even means you can take it with you to the party.
For eyes, we tested the 100% Pure Mineral Eyeshadow set. Again, this was packaged nicely and came with three eyeshadows and an eye liner in black. The eyeshadow names get you in the mood. Will you be a socialite, seductive or mysterious tonight? There was an eyeshadow brush and a contouring eye brush too. This kit makes it possible to apply your make-up professionally with guidance for a flawless finish.
Visit e.l.f. if you want to introduce your daughters to make-up or to revive your tired beauty routines.
